Winter bad, writing good

Winter bad. Southbound MARTA train taken out of service, stranding me at Lindburgh station, bad. Eastbound MARTA train running late and stranding me at Five Points station, bad.

Unhappy, frozen commuter Eugie.

   

Writing Stuff

"Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest etc." is now up at Critters.org. I was pleased to see four crits in my inbox this morning. At its longer length, I didn't expect this baby to get much lovin'.


Published:
- My December Writing for Young Readers column, "Writing Talking Animal Tales," is now up! There was much badness with email. My first two attempts to send the editor my column vanished into the Internet ether with nary a peep--no bounce message, no nothing. My email server appears to be butting heads with cox.net. Most distressing, and VERY frustrating. But at least I was finally able to get the file to her.


Received:
- Contrib. copy and payment for Aegri Somnia. It's puuuurty.


New Words:
- 800 on "By Oak, Bramble, and Metro." Adderall was indeed the prod my muse needed yesterday. Although this story is going in a different direction than I'd anticipated. I somehow managed to bring the Iraq war into a story about a fairy metro train. My subconscious appears to be O.D.ing on news broadcasts.
